authority placed several phone calls to egyptian president morsi and he refused to take the call, he wants hamas to be stronger, and the problems in the middle east are so large now and part of this because of our weakness, and, where they build the houses on the outskirts of jerusalem, no one will remember that two months from now. >> chris: they died it against u.s. wishes an defied the administration, too, no one seems to be listening to them. again, there is egypt. and the continuing protest, senator bayh in egypt, thousands of people demonstrating a year or so ago against hosni mubarak and now the new egyptian president morsi and the draft constitution written by an islamist assembly and critics, including those on the street say it doesn't provide enough guarantees for women's rights or minority religions. what do you make of the situation, in egypt and the dangers that it could turn into an islamic state. >> the bottom line in egypt, it is bad for egyptians and their political future, and perhaps not quite as bad for the long term national security interests of the united states, an
a referendum. this comes a day after they said it would boycott a referendum. >> president mohamed morsi granted himself sweeping powers. that prompted some judges to call for an indefinite strike. >> germany is reported to be considering the export of tanks and armored vehicles to saudi arabia, a country which is already -- has already used its weapons to put down a popular uprising in the country neighboring. >> they say that hundreds of boxer armoured patrol vehicles -- should the deal goes through, it would make the government an accomplice to islamist extremists, some said. >> saudi arabia is reportedly looking to purchase several hundred of these boxer armoured patrol vehicles.

of dictatorship. and judge napolitano is here. the best way to describe what morsi did, he came in and tried to make himself a dictator. >>judge napolitano: he did. he came in, initially, as the man of the people, as the first popularly elected chief executive of egypt in its 3,000 year history. in a year of being in office, he said, the courts can not everrule me and no one can sue me and no one can second-guess me and what i say is the law. while he did that, he got the legislature, which was elected with him to write a new constitution without debate or input and against the rules of the present constitution and he is just putting it out there for the public to vote on. why are the judges so upset? the egyptian system of judges is similar to ours and to the british system, and judges can say to the government, that is unconstitutional. can you not do it. not in the islamic world which is what the constitution will have. their goal is an oath that is any dealt to shiria law, not rights of divided powers. >>shepard: egypt is the most powerful because of the numbers, 80 million people in egy

[laughter] i prepared some remarks for tonight, but then i thought maybe we could just watch that video a few more times. [laughter] and then the next time, i could count the hairstyles, which is one of my favorite pastimes. [laughter] i think i now know what it feels like to be one of haim's mighty morphin power rangers. [laughter] well, i guess we should expect nothing le
with chants of "cancel, cancel, we won't leave until he leaves" a reference to president morsi. the deck seems to be stacked against them and the moment seems to have shifted in favor of the president, michael but they still have their voice and they're coming out protesting again, it looks like. >> of course this all relates back, give people the context, to the power grab, others call expansion of powers by mr. morsi which some in the judiciary oppose. others have approved of. all relates to new constitution. give us the synopsis there. >> reporter: the president's position, all along, has been he was elected to establish the democratic institutions after the 2011 revolution. he said he inherited the legislature and announced decrees to push through with the process of forming a constitution of establishing a parliament. and avoiding what he called the impediment of the old judges and the remnants from the mubarak regime who wanted to block his way. then you have opposition factions who described that process as a power grab, as the president's attempt, as the muslim brotherhood's attempt to
on it. that could be way out of the tough situation last week when morsi said his acts were beyond the judicial review. that ignited street credits there. >> we have to share everything on the table laws. for stable laws and separation of powers. the matters should be independent and will take tim time. >> they stress the faith of each constitution will be decided by the egyptian people. >> it will be up to them whether they need their standard. have a chance to make it clear. >> it's a question whether the move will be enough for the opposition. they have come out in force for seven nights. your will see likely protests in short-term on friday by those wanting to drive the president out of office. the size of the protest will give the first you indication of where they stand. >> thanks. united nations upgraded status on the world assembly to take a step toward recognition and ignoring u.s. opposition. eric shawn has that story tonight. >> in washington, bipartisan group of senators are threatening to cut funding if they use the status to punish israel. >> two states, one jewish an

morsi of egypt was very active and positive in forcing a cease-fire on the hamas and the jihad. so i think that we have to accept the realities that our neighbors do not prescribe to the same principles and values that we share. but we have to live with them and find ways to talk with them and we have to find ways to create rapport between the leaderships of our countries in order to maybe establish a different patron of relations but one that is based on mutual respect and mutual security for both sides. >> rose: it may be better in the end? >> i hope so. listen, we never can lose optimism to be and hope for the improvement in the situation and this is what has to guide us. i don't suggest that pessimistic people will be in positions of leadership in any country. you have to be optimistic, you have to try ever possible avenue to improve things and i think that this is what we have to do and i believe that our government, which ever government we will have whether netanyahu or another one we will continue on this direction of optimism to achieve peace and better relations with our ne
